Hotel Park and Seeallee, Heiden , 2012

The building site for the new hotel in Heiden is a sensitive place in the townscape. It marks the beginning and the end of the traditional spa promenade, which basically justifies a prestigious building for public use. Our design is derived from the silhouette of Heiden; the perspective staggering of simple cubic building volumes is incorporated into the project. By dividing the hotel into three individual units, its volume corresponds to its surroundings; familiar façade proportions of the typical classical Biedermeier houses are reinterpreted. The result is a modern building that nevertheless tells the story of the location. It is a distinctive building with a quiet character, which is able to integrate into the overall picture quite naturally and unpretentiously due to its peculiarities.
